You are aboard the Maid of the Mist, the infamous riverboat that takes you along the fringes of the falls. NIAGARA. Streams of mist pour and pour relentlessly over your eyes. You are one with the water. The fishy smell of murder lingers. "..this is the moment, Oh thrill me.." The falls. Possibly the most powerful allegory for love. To be downstream, without a paddle. To pray that you sink, before being torn to shreds trying to swim. "...thrill me, thrill me, thrill me..." Location choice is obvious. Gorgeous scenery. Any jackass could've shown up with a camera. Execution, however, was professional. Perfect. The strongest presence in the film, the water, constantly flowing and flowing. Looming, and roaring in the distance. A reminder that the forces of nature are all-consuming. "...take me, take me, in your arms..." Marilyn, I prefer it when she's bad. "...make my life perfection..." A surprisingly clever screenplay. Co-written by The, Charles Brackett. Seriously, if this film does not impress you, slap yourself. Throw yourself over the falls, because you know nothing about film.

I have always enjoyed older movies. This one is great. Marilyn was awesome in this film and the scenery was breathtaking even if the the film quality was a little poor.
